What People are Saying about our Newest Book

Mascupathy addresses the trap of many men who cling to old models of manhood and wreak havoc on the women and children in their lives. Donaldson and Flood offer knowledgeable and compassionate approaches to helping men extricate themselves from the downward spiral of their lives and to regain their lost humanity.”

“The last half century saw the revolution for women. A new era is upon us, when men are discarding ancient and errant masculinity, and seeking the soul of a new manhood. Mascupathy is an important book – the first to identify the problem, awaken a new consciousness, and usher in men’s second, and much better, act.”

Mascupathy is tragically more normative in men than exceptional. What comes through in this book is the authors’ concern and empathy for the unnecessary suffering of men and so many others. As therapists and regular guys, they see much of this up close and have given all of us a deeper way to think and talk about men’s issues.”

“Donaldson and Flood’s Mascupathy is a clear, deep, and moving exploration of the code of traditional masculinity and the damage it causes in the lives of men, and, through them, the people they love. It is essential reading for any man wishing to understand and free his heart — or any woman who loves him.”
